Produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald, the film wowed audiences at the Sundance, Berlin and SXSW film festivals and during its YouTube world premiere in January. It follows life in one day on Earth as seen through the eyes of thousands of different people from all over the world.
What happens when you send a request out to the world to chronicle, via video, a single day on Earth? You get 80,000 submissions and 4,500 hours of footage from 192 countries. Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald took this raw material — all shot on July 24, 2010 — and created Life in a Day, a groundbreaking, feature-length documentary that portrays this kaleidoscope of images we call life.
